There has been growing infertility among women all around the world and Saudi Arabia is not an exception. According to a study, there are 5 reasons for growing infertility among women in Saudi Arabia.
1-Late Marriages: The study has determined that late marriages have been on the rise because Saudi citizens have been striving to achieve more and more education.
2-Working Women: Recently, the number of working women in Saudi Arabia has increased by a huge fraction. Working women have other priorities as well apart from increasing the family size.
3-High Cost of Living: The high cost of living has led to a considerable widening in the gap between children. Previously the age gap between children was one to two years, which has now become several years. This has, in turn, resulted in fewer children altogether per family.
4-High Abortion Rate: Growing abortion rates amongst women who are getting pregnant after the age of 40 is another reason, as reported by experts.
5-Health Condition of Women: Dr. Hamad Al-Sufyan a gynecology and obstetrics consultant has said that there are five reasons for the increase in infertility rates amongst women in Saudi Arabia.
- Unhealthy junk food.
- High blood pressure.
